The goal of the program is to expand sustainable land and water management (SLWM) in targeted landscapes and in climate vulnerable areas in West African and Sahelian countries. Key performance indicators (KPIs) for the program are: 1. Increase in land area with SLWM practices in targeted areas, compared to baseline (hectares, reported by crop, range, forest, wetlands, and protected areas [PAs]) 2. Changes in vegetation cover in targeted areas, compared to baseline (hectares [ha]) 3. Targeted institutions with increased adaptive capacity to reduce risks and response to climate variability, compared to baseline (#) 4. Change in carbon accumulation rates in biomass and soil, compared to baseline (tC/ha)
